‘Retba’ Collection

 

The ‘Retba’ collection takes its name after the Lac Rose, north of Senegal in northwest Africa. Inspired by its uniqueness, we created the ‘Retba’ collection. A feminine collection with a unique crystal pattern that refers to the lake’s high salt content, up to 40% in some areas. The natural beauty of the landscape dictated our color palette: milky pink from the lake’s waters and its outer layers of white and grey salt rims. Men and women from all over Western Africa, work 6–7 hours a day, feet in water (protected with shea butter). Not only the beauty of the lake is astonishing, but the human work ethics and spirits is what moved us the most while developing this collection. The ‘Retba’ collection is a celebration of both nature and human beauty.
